Also just be cautious of your trash cans and bird feeders around your yard because these things are known to attract bears. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection instructs that you should not run away from bears or make direct eye contact.

Running may trigger a chase response and making eye contact may trigger bears to perceive this as a ‘“challenge”. If you see or hear anything about any bear sightings, make sure to call 911 immediately and police will respond with animal control.
